Warner Records has promoted Norva Denton to senior vp of A&R, the recently-rebranded label announced today (Feb. 24). Denton will remain based at the label's Los Angeles headquarters, reporting to Warner Records co-chairman/CEO Aaron Bay-Schuck.
"Norva is the perfect fit for our revitalized A&R department, as he brings youthful energy, solid relationships, and a strong marketing background in addition to his A&R expertise," Bay-Schuck said. "He has the respect of the creative community and artists alike, and Tom and I congratulate him on this well-deserved promotion."
A Chicago native, Denton joined Warner Records in 2018 as director of A&R. At Warner, he signed and curated a comeback for rapper Wale, serving as a producer on the artist's October 2019 album Wow...That's Crazy, which debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 and spawned hit single "On Chill" featuring Jeremih. Denton also worked with Atlanta rapper YFN Lucci.
